Some works to your home may require building regulation approval. This can be anything from an extension or loft conversion to removing an internal wall or replacing windows. Items like windows may be done under a contractors scheme such as FENSA but other items may require an application. Building Regulations usually apply to works that required planning consent but often they are also required where planning is not.
We can assist with the following:
advise whether building regulation approval is required
completion of drawings and notes to accompany an application for consent
submission of the application
Building Regulation appications can be submitted in many ways:
Building Notice - this is a 48hr working day notice to inform the Council you wish to start works after two working days.
Full Plans Application - a submission of all the working details to the Council in which they usually respond with approval or conditional consent within 6-8 weeks.
Alternatively you can submit your proposals to an 'Approved Inspector' rather than the Council.
